Wire Transfer

The electronic transfer of money from one bank account to another. This is how most home loan borrowers pay their upfront costs. Pro tip: watch out for wire fraud! Always call the bank you’re wiring money to (at a number you find on a reputable website – never from the wiring email). That way, you can confirm the accuracy of wiring details.
